Wine Cellar Project Begins

Click on Pics to Enlarge

s I have mentioned to some, in the 1950's a bomb/fall-out shelter was built in an area toward the back of my property. It was built out 12" thick re-enforced concrete. It measures about 12' x 16', is nine feet high and the top of the shelter is about 4 feet below ground level.

I plan to build a structure over it and convert the below ground shelter into a wine cellar.

The above three pictures show the initial stage of site prep, layout and excavation.

The entrance, a 14 step stairwell, that was constructed to access the below ground shelter
can be seen in the pictures.

The two 4 inch galvanized pipes seen extending up from the ground surface are apart of a
hand cranked air filtering system. .
